Kings of Leon Cancel Tour
The Kings of Leon are pulling the plug on the rest of their U.S. tour -- due to health issues affecting lead singer Caleb Followill ... TMZ has learned.

A rep for the band released a statement saying, "We are so sorry to say Kings of Leon are canceling their entire US tour due to Caleb Followill suffering from vocal issues and exhaustion."

The statement continues, "The band is devastated, but in order to give their fans the shows they deserve, they need to take this break.  Unfortunately, the US dates cannot be rescheduled due to the band's international tour schedule."

The rep tells us tickets will be refunded -- and the band will resume touring in Canada on September 28th.

The had one hit song and now they are running around like little diva's. No one will give a **** about them in a year because they can't produce hits. They should continue because they might has well capitalize on the money now, because everyday we could care less about their little hit song.

This sounds suspicious. Vocal issues and exhaustion? Many singers have vocal issues and get exhausted but they keep going not cancel an entire tour. There are remedies for vocal problems and they are almost immediate.

They are lying. Caleb was wasted and they were falling apart the whole tour. This coming from a member of Band of Horses.... KOL are a bunch of *******. Way to screw a ton of people out of their jobs because your lead singer is a drunk screw up.

Grow up KOL. Its a big boy world out there.

I can't imagine the lead "singer" being sick would make them sound any worse than they already do. They should just fess up: "Cancelling the rest of the tour because we happened to listen to one of our albums and realized how much we suck. Contacting ColdPlay to see how they make it work."

I wonder what this means for Band of Horses -- on tour with them. Will they go on as planned with a different partner or are all events just cancelled. HMMMMM.

...."Vocal issues and exhaustion"--typical code words used by publicists for the-- "lead singer has contracted a nasty bite of substance abuse problems, and has finally been given the ultimatum, rehab, or don't let the door hit you too hard on the way out....Artofwar
